Shaver: Gillette Red Tip A4
Soap: Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Dorm
Brush: Mac Metalworks 24mm
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Dorm aftershave and PAA Malbolge beard oil.
Picking out the soap, aftershave, brush and razor was easy ... I have had this combination in my mind all week but after using a Feather blade in the R41 ... when I took this picture this morning, I still hadn't decided between the Feather or the Personna, well old faithful won. Personna has been one of my most go to blades besides Astra SP (Green). The Red Tip and Personna worked well together this morning making for a smooth, comfortable shave. Now for the soap and aftershave, I was unsure what I was getting myself into when I ordered this scent. The performance of the soap was as expected but the scent strength is what surprised me. I could smell the scent through out the lathering and shave which is pretty darn good for me considering nose doesn't work all of the time. I'm thinking the scent may grow on me but I really like the scent strength. The performance of the soap is right on par with my expectations. A really nice shave. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
